House leaders: $220 million deal to keep Sikorsky in Connecticut “likely”

(WTNH)–A $220 million deal that would keep aircraft manufacturing giant Sikorsky in Connecticut is “likely,” according to Democratic leaders of the state’s House of Representatives.

Nearly one week ago, Governor Dannel Malloy announced the agreement with Lockheed Martin to keep the aircraft company headquarters in Stratford. On Monday, house leaders reviewed the deal.

The House speaker says they “feel good” about the plan. A special session vote will be held Wednesday at the capital.
